The power of the internet and social media is abundant. When a photo goes viral, it can change the world – and lives – in seconds. When this photo of four pit bulls was placed on social media, it went viral in minutes. These four dogs were lying together on the ground, huddled together. Emaciated and clearly not cared for, these dogs are a mess. The woman who took the photo to the internet wanted to see something done. Local authorities found the dogs and took them into custody. Those who have seen this disturbing and horrible image are beside themselves.
The local authorities have not said anything about the dogs since they were rescued, only that they were removed from the residence in which they were found. News stations went to the home to try and get a comment from the people who live there, but they had nothing to say. However, there have already been a number of people in the community in which the dogs were found that have stepped forward to ask whether or not they could rescue the dogs when they have been released from the care they are receiving now. An investigation is ongoing to find out what happened to these beautiful animals.
